karzai afghan president it's an honor and pleasure to have you with us today sir. thank you what were your hopes in two thousand and four when you were made president of afghanistan my whole put aspirations were the. peace for afghanistan a stable afghanistan afghanistan in close contact. with its neighbors and the new neighbors a country that progress into a better economy. better living standard of the afghan children who were deprived of education for so many decades who would have a chance to go to school some of those are spruces have been with some of them have
not been made so that was my my aspiration at the time but what would you say precisely seven years or what do you want to achieve and where did you fail maybe you managed to achieve a better economy we were more than twenty universities and right now television channel. a construction industry and afghan flag flying all around toward an independent sovereign afghanistan and the rest of the war of course will have to read to stuff spirituals are for us security for the afghan people peace for the afghan people for the whole country. to come in that is our continued effort and struggle. for the past couple of years sorry you have been subject to much criticism both personal and professional how do you deal with it when i was attacked very strongly by the western media. for the past many years
partly because of their lack of understanding afghanistan and the situation. partly because of politics and when your. in a country like afghanistan where there are so which will just and should work there's so much. conflict with the so what's rivalry were so many interests involved. it's only natural that. criticism like that would take place what would you say is they were like one main thing in afghanistan or about afghanistan that western media doesn't understand the . unfortunately or extremely simplistic conveyor in their study of ganesan and their analysis of measure if the if the afghan media were writing about politics sort of life or society in america or on fronts what with the right so
diverse and that's how the the the information about us it's it's simplistic andrew demetriou at best well former u.s. ambassador to afghanistan karl eikenberry is on the record as saying that you are not a nation builder what do you feel when you hear something that coming from a former u.s. army general. well it's. a lot of a lot of things have been said in those reports. as we now hear from the week. from other media sources. i don't know what is meant by not a nation but. we are building or it's you shouldn't we are building or we were building go police we have a democratic. order we have free media so that's what it's called a nation building and the united states is helping in many areas on that with us so my freedom started that remark or you brought up wiki leaks have you come across
something that you didn't know before that helped you or it damaged you in a way no the much of what came in to be complex did not come to visit price surprise those things before so no not really in your opinion the war on terror how much damage has it done to u.s. reputation in an islamic world well the war on terror is. to the extent that the war on terror is concerned. is it war a struggle for all of us it is a struggle for afghanistan it's a struggle for the united states it's a struggle for russia it's a struggle for the muslim countries it's a struggle for all of us start two more painful subject in twenty years after you came to power. and record levels of opium where harvested and that's to say at some
point i think taliban pointed down to me and what happened where we are in charge. that afghan government the afghan people. we have reduced poppies and twenty two provinces of afghanistan in some of those provinces were completely eliminated. we are not in charge. of one or two provinces where there are taliban over there are more foreign forces and those provinces of course poppies of entries and that's a question but still the volume of afghan drug money as of today six point five billion dollars which is five times as much as your national budget i mean who is behind this how high up does its power reaches those who grow poppies. grow it out of desperation i know people in afghanistan who destroyed their division yards their pomegranate orchards to replace it with poppies invest must be
done out of disparate. the trafficking is an entirely different matter the precursors that come to turn popular to narcotics is not of africa issue at all it's michael to afghanistan from other countries so those areas afghanistan is helpless to address the money the injured rate. illegally. six point five billion dollars as being five times afghan budget in afghanistan perhaps the afghan farmers receive cruise to some of this to me it's even much less than that so the rest of the money the real money goes abroad into into. into businesses are sort of get us to sue president people close to you for instance your health brother or your inner kardex minister are alleged by the united states to be involved in or in profit with a heroin trafficking. what do you do how can your administration be taken seriously
when such accusations are out there in public yes there are there were these accusations in the u.s. media. these accusers began almost five years ago. or even or do it and i can talk to you a sufficient sort of repeatedly. not once or twice thrice five six seven eight nine ten times even more and grow to them officially if they have anything if it so that they should come to tell me they always can see that this was all who were so how do you ensure or when do you think your government will be self-sufficient what what else can you do to stop harvesting and trafficking and arose out of get started this thing is economic sure for the afghan people it is the are absolutely need and the hope for the future that we must fulfil their economic needs
but we offer can our development of. infrastructure development and we must make sure that the afghans hope to have better hope for tomorrow the international drug trade is something that is beyond of again the sun's means to fight so that's an international matter for us to fight together but can't just somehow corporator help to stop the flow for instance today two point five million russians are addicted to after flawed we can't fly fight the law if you cannot stop it in russia you are a much more organized society you are a much more effective government if the united states cannot stop at the border with mexico. with all that policing in a better city we can a stunt the international community should have ganesan because we are very been destroyed by years of war and destruction and the infrastructure has gone the abilities gone the civil service and we can that's why we need to is there that's
why russia is helping our police force that's why america is helping your military so how did we do the capability to prevent supplies from of ghana's into other countries of course who would have done it too and we would have not been in such up sorry state as a whore today you brought up nato help what's your response to british defense minister sir david richards has said that they test shit stain over thirty forty years in afghanistan well that was a statement for five years ago now you know we have a transition plan. and you know that britain has announced that they will be withdrawing their forces by twenty fifteen to believe that yes i believe that close contact with. prime minister cameron and his government the british will leave afghanistan by twenty feet the americans also want to reduce to forces by twenty fourteen the transition is the most important thing here so you disagree with those
who say it's an realistic for nato to withdrawing truth and not what's not and realistically once we are back as a stable strong administration and country we can definitely protect our core we have a historical country. mention that you needed russian help in order to build that strong government independent government exactly what type of help do you want from russia there is there is both the ability to russia and the the need for russian afghanistan to engage with. natalee in a manner of russia help and afghanistan rebuild itself and re re develop its u two schilke capacity. but also by we are for trade by you or for investment by way of interaction between all businesses which is very strong do you think question seven better understanding of afghan mentality as opposed to americans oh yes a lot better a little bit because russia. is european and asian both russia understands
us culturally better and more we have to start the goods for the better that's that's a fact of the right that's the spiritual thank you very much mr president and welcome and i sincerely wish you and your people all the best in achieving peace and democracy wish you the best to. thank. you. repairing a broken english. highway construction under human a tarion eight. buses shady officials talk at the spoils of war it's the people who pay the price. profiteering here is no longer just down to drug trafficking. afghanistan on the dollar. on. wealthy british style.
